The Seismic Coating, as it can be seen from its name, is applied to the outer surface of the building to create a new “skin”. It combines a structural part seismic resistant made by reinforced concrete and a part made by insulating material to improve the walls’ thermal properties. The idea behind the patent is to accent the need to improve the safety level and the energy efficiency of the real estate.
Furthermore, the expansion of the real estate and the lack of resources lead to research solutions that maximize the benefit/cost ratio, minimizing ancillary costs and realization time.
The patent was developed with the collaboration of Padua University with a research project financed by Regione Veneto and European Social Found 2014-2020.
The Seismic Coating can be designed to reach different seismic safety levels and energy efficiency levels depending on the layer thickness and the material used. Using appropriate materials, for example, rock wool as insulating material, the reaction to fire of the structure can be improved.
